The 100 deadliest days on Minnesota roads are upon us with the summer travel season underway.

While summer is a time for fun activities and vacations, it’s also an important time to focus on safe driving. The stretch between Memorial Day and Labor Day last year accounted for 121 of the 358 fatalities, making up 34 percent of all the traffic deaths in 2017.

Driver behaviors continue to play a significant role in motor vehicle crashes. So as you hit the road this summer, remember: put away the distractions, slow down, buckle up, drive sober. Learn how Minnesota law enforcement are teaming up to keep you safe all summer long.
